I have lived in Montague for the past 19 years and I think that it is a good place to live overall. The only downside is that the taxes have been increasing in price and they are becoming more expensive.

Lots of snow in the winter, and freezing cold temperatures. Things warm up nicely in the summer though, but sometimes they bring nasty thunderstorms.
beautiful classic small new england mill town/farm community with growing arts scene, convenient to bigger towns including major educational area
